Coretta King Issues a Statement
PASSPORT
on Rift Between Blacks, Jews
PHOTOS

ATLANTA (JTA) — Mrs.
Coretta Scott King, widow
of the late civil rights
leader, Dr. Martin Luther
King Jr., issued a statement
last week on the status of
black-Jewish relations in
America, excerpts of which
follow:
"Because blacks and Jews
share a common heritage as
two of the most oppressed
minorities in the history of
humankind, any viable co-
alition for social progress in
America must include both
of these groups if it is to be
successful.
"I cannot agree with those
who have suggested that
strong Jewish support of the

civil rights movement led
by my husband was based
mostly on self-interest. It is
true that it is in the self-
interest of minorities to join,
together to insure their sur-
vival, but Jewish support of
black Americans in their
struggle for equality has
always transcended the dic-
tates of political expe-
diency.
From the earliest days
of the civil rights move-
ment to the present day,
blacks have counted on
the support of the Jewish
community. A number of
my husband's closest al-
lies, some, of whom have
dedicated an entire
lifetime to the movement
for racial equality, were
Jews . . . There can be no
doubt that this commit-
ment was based on fun-
damental human de-
cency and not simple
self-interest.
"In recent years, how-
ever, many observers have
noted a deterioration of
black-Jewish relations.
Large Islamic populations
in many African countries
and growing numbers of
black Americans who have
joined the Islamic faith has
prompted some increase in
identification with the
cause of the Palestinian
Arabs.
"Others saw a fundamen-
tal conflict of interest
emerge in the Bakke case
and the question of affirma-
tive action in general . . . .
"Finally, the recent furor
over Andrew Young's res-
ignation from his post at the
United Nations is seen by
many as cause for a serious
split between blacks and
Jews. The responsible black
leadership has always stood
fast for the right of Israelis
to a homeland and peace
with security and will con-
tinue to do so. I have faith
that the responsible Jewish
leaders will continue to
support the struggle of
blacks for racial justice.
"But there is another,
larger issue at stake. It is
a universal principle that
applies to all political
conflict — between the
people of Northern Ire-
land and the British, the
struggle in Southern Af-
rica as well as to the con-
flict between Israelis and
Palestinian Arabs. It is
the principle of open
communication that is
essential for nonviolent
reconciliation ... .
"We, who deeply believe
in the nonviolent method
can never condone a policy
of non-communication with
political opponents. There
can be no hope of peace
without a • willingness to
talk.
"I know that I am not
alone in this belief. It was
recently reported that a
number of prominent
American Jews like Philip
Klutznick, Nahum
Goldmann, George Gruen
and Herman Edelsberg met
with PLO representatives.
"For many years I have
worked closely with Jewish

groups on common issues
like full employment and
discrimination. I am deeply
committed to the world-
wide struggle of Jews and
all people for human rights.
I have served as honorary
chairperson of The Women's
Plea for Soviet Jewry in At-
lanta because I believe, as
my husband, said, We are
all tied together in a single
garment of destiny.'
"It is my sincerest hope
that black and Jewish
Americans will continue to
respect each other's right to
formulate independent
policies even as we join to-
gether in our mutual quest
for social decency and jus-
tice."
